Just for SQUARES!

There was a prompt from CreativeSprint to make something just using squares. I'd forgotten how I'd learned to love squares while teaching 2D design with Wucius Wong and Josef Albers Interaction of Color (years ago) I thought, Wow, there must be other Square lovers out there. Thanks to Katerina for the name idea. See More

Crystal Kayh replied to Thomas Burns's discussion Envelope materials in the group Envelopes
"I don't have them anymore but I have received one made of Tyvek and then another of melted plastic shopping bags that was painted.  It created some interesting textures but wasn't water tight."

CIRCLES

Call them circles, call them dots, use a hole punch, use a template, draw them, scribble them, paint them, collage them. This is all about circles and how we make use of them.See More

Absent at the wheel

I've been absent but lurking in the corners every now and then. I'm sorry to those who have sent me items and I've not sent return. All I can is it has been a gloomy time but I'm seeing light again. I'll be finishing several items I've started over the past year and get them in the mail starting next week. Wishing all you the BEST.....See More

TREES

A group devoted to the art of trees: free medium. Without trees the world would be dead and a place of disaster. With trees the world can tackle global warming. Hug a tree and you hug the earth, you hug yourself and your neighbors. Without trees, no love!Without love, no trees.A sequel to the mail art project SIGNS and STONES and TREES (of 1998).Guido Vermeulen started this group. After his death the IUOMA members keep it alive with posting photos and drawings of TREES in memory of Guido.See More

First Mail Art Received

I got home last night and was pleasantly surprised to get me first piece of mail art. I love it! But, I don't know who it's from....no name, however there is a return address. So, who here should I properly thank and send a return to?

Sorry, I cannot understand why this didn't arrive

in Texas for you, Thomas:

It was sent 9 June, 2020,

but came "return to sender" in today's mail, 1 Sept.2020.

Maybe the postal machine could not read "McKinney"?

Well, I'll try again to send it in a new envelope, 

hope it arrives one day, some day!

I'm so happy my mail art arrived safe and sound! Let me know if you have any questions about keeping track of who sent what, etc. Hugs, Bonniediva!
